Listening to my husband wax feminist at family gatherings turns me on
i love sir patrick stewart more with each passing day.
See, guys. This is how you do it. Notice the words “Not all men are like that” are never spoken.
He knows men are like that
his father was like that to his mother
he has experienced the pain firsthand, of what it’s like when men are like that
and he never wants men to be like that again and he fights tooth and nail against the men who are still like that
And moreover, he acknowledges his privilege [as an older white male who is famous/well known] and uses it to speak up. He knows what he is, and he never has to say he’s not like those men he fights against—he never says it, his actions speak loud enough for everyone else to see it.
Sir Patrick Stewart, everyone.
Also, how are people comfortable with being so loud in public places?
I’m afraid I’m not cut out for grad school, guys. Like, I had to meet with a professor to discuss this supplemental reading today, and I got really nervous and couldn’t articulate my thoughts correctly. And now I’m waiting around on campus for my next class, but I don’t know where anything is in the library and I’m afraid to wander around because then someone might ask if I’m lost and everyone here smokes and walks really fast and cuts you off everywhere and I’m sitting in this public café area and there’s so many people here and soon I have to go to class with the same professor I embarrassed myself in front of this morning, and she probably thinks I’m really stupid and now I’ll never get into the doctoral program because she’s going to write me a bad recommendation.
Autism is a poorly-understood neurological disorder that can impair an individual’s ability to engage in various social interactions. But little 5-year-old Iris Grace in the UK is an excellent example of the unexpected gifts that autism can also grant – her exceptional focus and attention to detail have helped her create incredibly beautiful paintings that many of her fans (and buyers) have likened to Monet’s works.
Little Iris is slowly learning to speak, whereas most children have already begun to speak at least a few words by age 2. Along with speech therapy, her parents gradually introduced her to painting, which is when they discovered her amazing talent.
“We have been encouraging Iris to paint to help with speech therapy, joint attention and turn taking,” her mother, Arabella Carter-Johnson, explains on her website. “Then we realised that she is actually really talented and has an incredible concentration span of around 2 hours each time she paints. Her autism has created a style of painting which I have never seen in a child of her age, she has an understanding of colours and how they interact with each other.”
